Critical Analyzing of Khwarazm Victory
Ismaeil Hasanzadeh
Abstract:   (1254 Views)
Commercial position, plentiful wealth and higher geographical situation of Khwarazm, caused Muslim victors pay attention to Khwarazm from the first years they invaded it.
The arab’six attacks to Khwaraazm have been narrated sporadically and differently in historical  references. There are very incomplete data on the first three attacks which cannot be reviewed due to their limited and similar narrations. there are several conflicting data only from the last three attacks. One attack was done by Yazid ibn al-Muhallab and two others by Qutayba ibn Muslim. They are narrated with different origins in four different references: Baladhuri, Tabari, Ibn Aasam and  Biruni. Biruni’s narration is different and conflicted with the others, because of its origin. Despite the volume of data in three other historians’ narrations, they are in an advocacy manner of Arab’s attacks, because of the similar origins. In this article, we are going to analyze critically the narrations of Khwarazm victory by criticizing the narrative.
On the basis of performed studies, it seems that the first three historians couldn’t present a fair story of the two opposite sides of conflict, because of thier similar  origin although they demonstrated different information. They get advocacy position in order to legitimize the Qutayba attack.They have confused two Qutayba attacks and submit one narration which is discontinuous in structure and incoherent in content because of using several different narrations.
